description

This one was just OK for me. I'm not one to have an issue with dead exes, but Katarina's shadow was WAY too prominent in this book. I mean she was the whole reason they were making this special CD and they hadn't shared a woman since she died 7 years previous.

On top of that, the first 60% of this one was rather slow, with the last 40% moving at the speed of light. One minute they are still all heartbroken over Katarina. The next they are telling Lily they love her.

I have mixed feelings on this book, it's slow to get going and considering this is a ménage book (I felt the cover was misleading since it only shows one guy) it's well into the second half before they actually get together.
I liked the three main characters and the scenes with them together worked well, I struggled to get my head around the butler part (and I'm British) but the main problem for me was Katarina, it's a personal dislike of mine to have an ex feature so heavily and here she was li

MEH. For a novella it took forever (70%) for the three of them to hook up, and the whole story was just meh.

-Ménage. Woot! Look, what’s better than a dick? Two dicks, and they’re all for you...I mean the heroine. Fun times, people.
-Novella. For when you need a tasty treat and don’t have the time for a full length novel.
-Classical. In prose and music, this novella feels a bit ethereal, mostly formal and a tad more flowery than I expected. Yes, at first I thought they would be rock star billionaires instead of classical musicians, and that vibe translates to the whole book. They live in a rarefied world

This book was okay. There wasn't anything that really kept my attention or a wow factor. It didn't get interesting until pass 60% and then I was rushing to get through it. I liked the main characters but the story wasn't all that interesting by the end. The relationship between the three of them was the only thing I really liked about this story. However, I felt like the cover and description makes the book sound sexier than it was (I mean it was but not as raunchy as I thought it would be). I t ...more
Mindy Lou's Book Review
I had a bit of trouble connecting with this story. For me, Lily being a butler and dressing so rigidly as a butler and how professional all three were with each other was a barrier for me. When the flirting truly started it seemed out of place. For me, this was such a short story that if we had more pages/time to make the flow from profession to unprofessional, I think it would have helped. Overall, the writing was good, just too short for a proper flow. I would certainly read more from this aut ...more

This is my first time reading a book by Calista Fox. Seduction is an erotic novella filled with sexual tension. A musical menage with only one (steamy) sex scene.

I think it just needed more dialogue, especially since it’s such a short read and there’s not much room to get to know the characters. That’s even harder when you have to heroes in the story! The author doesn’t rush to get things going between them, keeping a steady pace.

I liked this novella. It was sexy, had a good closure, but ther

A female butler is definitely an interesting choice for a heroine! As expected, there are some sexy scenes in this menage romance novella. Having the two main male characters named Jax and Lex made for a bit of confusion for me (the names were too similar, I kept mixing up who was who). As Jax and Lex are still grieving the loss of their previous female partner, Lily is right to be cautious about getting emotionally involved with them. This is an insta- lust/insta-love story with minimal conflic ...more

Seduction is a nice introduction to a new series. Lily comes from a long line of professional butlers and she's just been hired for a temporary position as a butler for two classical musicians - Jackson "Jax" Sterling and Lexington "Lex" Alexander. From the very beginning, she's attracted to both men and the feeling is obviously mutual. But, she has a job to do, and she's unsure if she wants to jeopardize that job for what would have to be a temporary fling with the two gorgeous men.

'Seduction: A Bayfront Billionaire' Novella by Calista Fox is the story of by Lily, Lex and Jax.
This was a hot, easy novella read. Lily has taken a butler job and was hired for them so she had not officially met them yet. Lex and Jax are working on a new CD that has a personal history to it. But they are hitting a mental road block. But that seems to let up some when they start a fascination with Lily and it turn she has one with them. This story did have a Cinderella feel at points. T

Sometimes picking up a new-to-me erotic romance author feels like playing Russian roulette. There's a lot of stuff out there that's coercive or badly edited or just plain dumb. I am 1000% behind some sexytimes, but if it's erotic romance and not just erotica, I've got to have a plot beyond simple bonking. So I was very pleased with Calista Fox's MFM sexy contemporary, Seduction.

Wow! Super steamy menage! What a treat! I was enjoying the story so much then it was over! I am a sucker for Billionaires and I love menage stories so I wanted much, much more!

Lily takes a temporary job as a live-in butler for two famous musicians. She needs the money to fulfill her dream of a trip to Paris and the continent. She wasn't expecting both men to be so handsome and for her reactions to each one. She's expected to be at their beck and call and soon she's the meat in the middle of a ho

Reviewed at Keeper Bookshelf

Seduction was a good menage erotic story. For the most part I enjoyed the time spent in the sensuous world of Lex, Jax and Lily… but the ghost of a past love was also part of this grouping and that changed the tone of the book for me.

Jax and Lex are prominent classical musicians, best friends working together again on a tribute CD… which is not going as well as they’d hoped. When they meet the temporary butler, Lily their muse seems to have returned to them. The work

I gotta admit, I'm about sick of the millionaire/billionaire plot in romances. However, I throughly enjoyed the peek behind the curtain of professional classical musicians. I also throughly loved the look at a butler's life (that wasn't Downton Abbey influenced). I guess you would get use to having someone anticipate your needs and be semi-invisible while going about daily activities but as a middle class American, it feels creepy and stalkerish. But it was a fun look.

When Lily walked into their lives she became their muse allowing them to create beautiful music and as they created their passion overflowed into their relationship with Lily. Whether

I liked this book. For being a short book it was good. At least Jax and Lex were not self-arrogant being billionaires. I enjoyed that Lily did not come off as overly sexual. Therefore, when she was experiencing the passion with Jax and Lex it was both sweet and spicy. Both men acknowledged that this was the first time that Lily has been with two men and so they were careful with her. The sex scenes were brief. I would say this book is right in the middle between a romance and an erotica novel. A ...more

I have never read anything by this author before but I have to say from the description I was hoping for more. Usually I feel that novellas can feel too rushed but in this instance, I was thinking get to the point already. Lily, Lex and Jax danced around their attraction to one another for about 2/3 of the story before anyone acted on their feelings. And once they did, it just seemed rushed.

To be honest, this story turned out to be better than I had expected, because I’m usually not a fan a menage stories. This novella was well-paced with engaging and enthralling characters. I loved the seductive taboo aspect of this story of two internationally acclaimed classical musicians and their lady butler, their chemistry was all-consuming. I enjoyed the dynamic between the three characters as the story unfolded.

This was a new author book for me and since I am a sucker for a menage book I gave it a try.

A shorter story with interesting characters - 2 world famous musicians and a woman butler. The guys are trying to get back their 'groove' while collaborating again and find themselves fascinated with their interim butler. They find that they are inspired by her presence and install her as their muse. So begins a whirlwind relationship between the 3. But will they be able to sustain it with all the plans

Well....it was....interesting. Ususally I'm all for this plot, but man was this one difficult to get through.
The whole time I just felt bored.

Lily was ok, as were Lex and Jax. But the whole thing felt rushed and not planned out. It was a really quick read and I was able to skim most of it without feeling like I was missing much. I just felt like this one was kind of a dud.

If you are looking for a short hot menage, then you've found a gem. Lex, Jax and Lily ignite the pages in this one. I love how Jax and Lex take their time with Lily and bring her into their world. They are sweet and oh so alpha. Because this is a novella though, there isn't too much to the story. I would have loved to know more about each of the characters and where they go after they become a throuple. Good, short read though with lots of heat.
